I deinstalled SOME VESA drivers from my CentOS 7 system.

Now it doesn't boot any more.

What can I do now?

Should I boot with no graphical interface? And then? I can't reinstall the system from scratch because I would lose important programs and configuration. Should I reinstall only the gnome graphical environmental?

Can I do this while being connected to a wireless in the non graphical environment?

  • Vesa drivers aren't used very deeply today. You used probably some different one. – peterh Mar 5 '17 at 16:26
  • Thank by the way now centos does not boot properly it goes in a loop.. Should I reinstall the standard gnome group? – Giovanni Byce Mar 5 '17 at 16:27

Try a

yum history

And look at the packages you uninstalled, then do a

yum history undo ID

Wher ID is the number of the command you uninstalled the VESA drivers

  • Thanks a lot, user21, but should I enter in the systemd.unit multi user? And from there I should use yum history? – Giovanni Byce Mar 5 '17 at 20:54
  • No, enter theese 2 commands in a terminal as root. Then simply reboot the system – SwissTico Mar 5 '17 at 22:10
